Fans held their breath after headlines reported that Bob Odenkirk was hospitalized, but now after months of waiting, we finally have a premiere date for the final season of Better Call Saul.
Here’s the official announcement:

Just like the final season of Breaking Bad, the sixth season of BCS will also be split into two, with the first half premiering on April 18 and the second half premiering on July 11. With 13 episodes in total, the first half will be taking the majority of 7 episodes with the second half counting 6.
While the teaser doesn’t reveal much, the black and white does imply that this takes place in the future after the events of Breaking Bad, and we see that it’s actually “Gene” that takes the wanted poster of the bulletin board. After several seasons of Gene being scared of getting found out, his last appearance actually has him taking a stance, and fans are curious how things will go down for Saul in the future.

Though Breaking Bad gives us a rough idea of what to expect—like Jimmy’s involvement with Lalo Salamanca—it’s the fate of Kim Wexler (Rhea Seehorn) that has fans worried. Is she going to die as a consequence of Jimmy embracing criminal life? Or is she going to have to change her identity to be safe from the Salamancas? It’s all pretty nerve-wracking for fans, but hopefully Peter Gould and Vince Gilligan will be able to deliver as they did with the final season of Breaking Bad.
Catch Better Call Saul when the series returns on April 18.
